Trump is Back in Twitter Form With an Unhinged Twitter Storm

After taking a day off for some unexplained reason, President Donald Trump was back on Twitter Sunday morning addressing many of his favorite topics, including:  

He wrote first, “Do you think the Fake News Media will ever report on this tweet from Michael?” referring to a report that Cohen had complimented Trump Junior. “So proud of @DonaldJTrumpJr for being open, honest and transparent to the American people,” Cohen wrote on Twitter on July 11, 2017, attaching a photo of Trump Jr. for good measure. “This nonsense needs to stop!”

The president also renewed the fear that he would shut down the United States government just before the midterm elections. Trump said he would have no problem considering doing that if congressional Democrats do not support additional funding for a border wall with Mexico.

“I would be willing to “shut down” government if the Democrats do not give us the votes for Border Security, which includes the Wall! Must get rid of Lottery, Catch & Release etc. and finally go to system of Immigration based on MERIT! We need great people coming into our Country!”

Trump also claimed that he met with New York Times publisher A.G. Sulzberger. Trump said the two chatted about “the vast amounts of Fake News being put out by the media.”

Had a very good and interesting meeting at the White House with A.G. Sulzberger, Publisher of the New York Times. Spent much time talking about the vast amounts of Fake News being put out by the media & how that Fake News has morphed into phrase, “Enemy of the People.” Sad!”

Trump also continued to defend his administration’s highly criticized immigration policies, as the federal government struggles to fulfill a court order to reunify parents separated from their undocumented children.

Please understand, there are consequences when people cross our Border illegally, whether they have children or not – and many are just using children for their own sinister purposes. Congress must act on fixing the DUMBEST & WORST immigration laws anywhere in the world! Vote “R”

“Democrats, who want Open Borders and care little about Crime, are incompetent, but they have the Fake News Media almost totally on their side!”

In a ridiculous tweet, Trump claimed once again that he is the most popular president in the Republican Party’s history going all the way back to Abraham Lincoln’s election in 1860. Of course what Trump tweeted is not true since not only is he less popular among his party than his recent predecessors but public opinion polling didn’t start until the 1930’s.

Wow, highest Poll Numbers in the history of the Republican Party. That includes Honest Abe Lincoln and Ronald Reagan. There must be something wrong, please recheck that poll!”

Overall, his popularity (42 percent in the most recent weekly poll) remains well below the high point of his predecessors: Dwight D. Eisenhower peaked at 79 percent of all voters in 1956, Ronald Reagan at 68 (twice), George H.W. Bush at 89 at the time of the Gulf War, and George W. Bush at 90 percent shortly after the 9/11 attacks.

This morning’s flurry of tweets from the president did nothing but confirm that he is unhinged, deluded, and living in a fantasy world of his own making. The good news is that since he doesn’t realize how unpopular he is — and his policies are — it is likely that his party will go down to a crushing defeat in this year’s midterm elections.
